Lou's Review

Hands Free Running Lead
(SimplyShe, Inc, imported by ASDA)

What is it?

This is a 2.1m long florescent lead which has an adjustable strap designed to fit around your hooman's waist (so you can drag them on your run) and an elasticated bungee end to protect our necks (when your hooman is not fit enough to keep up!) 
It will fit hooman's up to waist size 112cm (44in) and dog's weight 27kg (60lb)

What was it like?

Now I have been toying with the idea of CaniX for ages but have always been put off by the cost of the harnesses and leads so this seemed a very cheap alternative - my hooman also does geocaching and thought this would also be handy (pawsome?) to keep me attached to her but allow her to have her hands free too (I tend to wander off while they are searching)
Unfortunately our trial run was a disaster - my hooman found the lead to be VERY uncomfortable around her waist (she is tiny!) and it was literally garroting her even when our paces matched.
She tried using it around her whist but we definitely do not recommend that (a trip to casualty might be in order if you do!)

Best points?

The lead looks the business, the bright colour is great for visibility (but would be better if it was reflective too), the elastic really did work and it seemed pretty strong too.

Bad points?

It's like wearing a cheese wire around your waist - you cannot use this as a normal lead either
(without an awful lot of faffing around)

Would you buy it again?

That's a no!
Love the idea of this and while the elasticated bit is brilliant - the hooman end is damn right awful.
Much prefer using our long training lead which has clips on both ends - one for me and my hooman clips hers onto one of her belt loops!!!

It's a lead, lead means walkies ... lets go ...just not with this one!
